Destination: Christchurch, New Zealand

Weather: Partly Sunny, 60-75 degrees

Welcome back! As you might remember from last Tuesday, we hopped a flight to Fiji for a week to relax due to a bunch of different things cropping up (train fire / sickness / driving conditions / etc.). This week we are back in Christchurch, New Zealand which is the south island east coast.

Bill and I are so glad we stopped here! You could tell what used t...

What we’re:

doing this weekend: It's Father's Day! So we are headed to Vero to spend it with Daddy Carr and celebrating with Daddy Redeker next Friday. 

drinking - As most of you know, I love my coffee, but have never tried and espresso martini, so I will be adventurous and try that this weekend (of course at cocktail hour!).

Welcome back to Travel Tuesday's! Today, I am still featuring our delayed honeymoon over to New Zealand and Fiji, but more on Fiji later...

After our first stop in the Bay of Islands, Bill started to come down with a cold and by the time we made it to the Waitomo Caves, it was a full-on head cold!!! While driving down to Waitomo Caves, in the middle of what seemed like nowhere, Bill and I realized we really didn't want to drive...

Are you a people pleaser? You’re not alone! I definitely fall into that category too. Do you ever remember the kids in school  that would beat to their own drum and do things “because they wanted to”? Well….that definitely wasn’t me!

I wanted to fit in and not make any waves, but after years of growing up and becoming a young adult and a business owner, I have needed to find a new balance and it hasn’t been easy!

This past year...

Destination: Matauri Bay, New Zealand

Weather: 50-80 degrees Fahrenheit, sunny and partly cloudy

As many of you know, Bill and I got married in October 2015, but due to our work schedules we didn't have a chance to plan / go on our honeymoon until this past February AND LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT.

Honestly, New Zealand was never on my "bucket list" of places to travel, but I quickly came to see why this place is known from their ma...

Love this quote and thought it would go great with the very inspiration speech below.

Some of the highlights from Will Ferrell's USC Commencement Speech, what an inspiration to both Bill and I! We are learning on "trusting our gut" again, something we both have seemed to ignore when going through a difficult period.

Also, "throwing darts", it is so important to get out there and throw out many things and see what sticks. For a p...

Balance...sounds like it should be a simple thing to achieve, but throw in work, family and life  and things always seem to get a bit out of whack. At least for me, it does.

I can certainly say I am not the poster child of a balanced life, as a young entrepreneur, I have made the cliche mistakes… BUT, I am working it and was hoping we could do it together!! 

Although I don’t think there can be balance all-day, every-day,  my goa...
